Is there a guide somewhere? I was just wondering. Do I have the play the first 10 in the same time frame? Does it have a different elo decay formula?

I don't believe there is a timeframe. You will received 50 ELO for each match won over ten games which will decide your placement in the ranks.

Exactly 50? Does it start at exactly 1200?

I've been getting 35-40 elo per win.

Currently at 6 wins, 0 losses and 1518 elo, hopefully I'll be near 1700 by the end of the placement games.

Well apparently you get matched with 2 people who are as good as you and 2 people who have no idea what they are doing and then duke it out against a team of about the same calibre.

you will get matched with some retards who feeds, so you lose elo. But while you are doing your placement matches you lose even more. Then eventually you will only lose a little before you get mad and create another thread

You get around 40 elo and lose around 40 elo in the first 10 matches.
After the first 10 matches, you will still gain or lose a huge amount of elo - close to the 40 elo gaines/lost.
It decayes to values of around 18 - 12 after a huge number of matches.

It does start at 1200 if you never played any ranked matches AFAIK.

This community is full of people who flame for no reason... sigh.

Of course he is a smurf, he is a lvl 5 senior member on forums. I was implying that I wanted to see his match stats etc.
